Re: how to use X11 forwarding



I am just confused with what X11 forwarding can do.
suppose that I start Putty on my windows machine and connect to my linux
server using ssh. then how can I use it?
Does X11 forwarding can allow me to call X applications on the linux
server so that they run on my windowns machine?
